Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies.

This is my new favorite cookie recipe. It took me a while to get the flour amount right so that the cookies are not too dry and brittle, as often happens when baking without wheat. 

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 20

250 g (1.1 cups) butter
1 dl (0.4 cups) caster sugar
1 dl (0.4 cups) brown sugar
2 eggs
4.5 dl (1.8 cups) flour (I used 3.5 dl organic cornmeal and added 1 dl of potato starch)
0.5 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
200 g dark chocolate chips (7 ounces)
1.5 Tbsp. minced rosemary (I used fresh but I guess you could also substitute this with dried rosemary)

Set your oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees F). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix the flours, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl beat together butter and the sugars until soft and creamy. Continue to beat the mixture and add the eggs one at a time. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the butter-sugar mixture until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and minced rosemary by folding with a spatula.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoon, about 5 cm (2 inches) apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press the cookies to get a bit flatter and smoother surface.

Bake in the preheated oven for ca 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Allow the cookies to cool down for a while on the baking sheet before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
